BAKU, Azerbaijan, July 28 (UPI) -- Fifth-seeded Bojana Jovanovski won her first WTA title Saturday with a straight-set victory over Julia Cohen in the Baku Cup tournament in Azerbaijan.

Jovanovski, just 20 but in her fifth season as a professional, piled up five service breaks in a 6-3, 6-1 win over Julia Cohen. Both Jovanovski and Cohen were appearing in their first WTA final.

Jovanovski was awarded $37,000 for Saturday's win while Cohen took home $19,000.
